“V is for Victory” Scarf

May 29, 2010 at 6:47 pm 13 comments

To celebrate Memorial Day this year, I designed the “V is for Victory” Scarf in honor of all fallen U.S. military men and women. It is a fast and super easy design based on an open V-stitch. Give it a try!

Row 1: 20 fdc (For help with the no-chain foundation stitches see my instructional video.)

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), [skip 1 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next dc] x 9, skip 1 dc, dc in last dc, turn

Row 3: ch 3 (counts as first dc), in first ch-2 space and in each ch-2 space across (dc, ch 2, dc), dc in last dc, turn

Row 4-84: repeat Row 3 (Stitch pattern may be worked until desired length is achieved.)

Row 85: ch 3, 2 dc in each open V-stitch across, dc in last dc (20 dc made)

Finish off. Add fringe if you like!

This version of the scarf was worked with a size I hook using a mohair blend (70% acrylic, 30% mohair) called Schachenmayr NOMOTTA Super Show. Pictures of the final product are posted HERE.

    I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today.
